Findings and declarations
The Legislative Assembly finds that owners of long term care facilities who devote substantial proportions of those facilities to providing long term care to residents eligible for medical services under Medicaid provide an essential community service. The Legislative Assembly declares that a property tax exemption will enable these essential community provider long term care facilities to increase the quality of care provided to facility residents. The Legislative Assembly further declares that the quality of care is increased most efficiently when the full value of the exemption is applied to increasing direct caregiver wages, physical plant improvements and other expenditures that directly benefit the facility residents and staff.
